10'' I*XL Wostenholm California Bowie Knife

George Wostenholm

Classic 10" I*XL California Bowie Knife which found fame during the Californian Gold Rush. 

The clip shaped blade is made from EN8 carbon steel and is hardened and tempered before being hand ground and finished by our Sheffield craftsmen. 

The knife has a brass guard and a coffin shaped handle which is fitted to the through tang using brass linings and pins. The ricasso is stamped on the top side "I*XL Sheffield, England" and on the reverse side "G. Wostenholm, Washington Works, none are genuine but those marked I*XL". 

The blade is deep acid etched with "Geo. Wostenholm & Son Celebrated CALIFORNIA KNIFE," the American Bald Eagle and "Equal Rights".

There are a choice of five handles - Rosewood, Rosewood with Brass End Caps, Buffalo, Buffalo with Brass End Caps and Stag Horn with Brass End Caps.

An embossed waxed shoulder leather sheath is available at extra cost and the knife and sheath can be supplied in a beautifully crafted, Sheffield made wooden presentation case which has a lift-out plinth and space below to stow the sheath.
